Scenes and videos from Seungho Jang Quintet

 Videos of the performances will be added to this page soon!

Just the day before the concert, the prominent jazz musician Charlie Haden passed away. Given that he was one of the heroes for the group leader, we asked the musicians whether they could play one of his tunes. Despite such a short notice, they obliged, and here is Silence by Charlie Haden:

Last October, we had the Korean Cultural Festival in which the Kayageum player TeRra Han graced the concert along with many musicians familiar to our Oasis cafe audience. We also mounted an interesting juxtaposition of the highly experimental Paintbrush Orchestra and the footages of video art by Nam June Paik. Last May, TeRra had her own spin on Nam June Paik, playing music by the eminent classical composer Sukhi Kang of Korea in the prestigious National Modern Art Museum as well as at the Seoul National University. The concert also featured the German musician Roland Breitenfelt on electronic sound.

Sumie Kaneko, another dear musician friend of ours, spent a busy Summer week as the invited performer for the Dhaka Summer Concert in Bangladesh.
